US VIRGIN ISLANDS
We have started our Norml chapter in the USVI. This week we were on 3 talk radio shows here and had another newpaper article written on the group and our efforts. I met with 2 Senators and the Lt. Governor's wife (we discussed how our efforts may affect the youth of the Territory). We had great response to our radio shows - 1 was 2 hours long and the calls never stopped. We had only 1 negative caller.
One of the Senators has pledged to introduce legislation this session for the legalization of MJ (not just med and not just decrim). I will be talking with him this weekend.
We really need financial supporters - even our minimum membership @ $15 will help. We need money to print our brochures and information for the educational process for the general public and the medical community.
I have personally financed the effort to date. I can't keep it up.
If anyone would like to see the USVI legalize medical and decriminalize marijuana - step up and support us financially. We are planning to offer temporary use permits for visitors to the VI once the laws are passed.
That will truly make America's Paradise - Paradise!
